RE: 4 doors getting a face lift


One thing leads to another. Wasn't going to paint the door jambs but glad I took the extra time to mask off and paint, would have looked a bit odd when you opened the door...old vs new. Clean up the shop and ready to paint the body,just might be a couple of weeks!hmm Christmas staff party in Vancouver next weekend,ferry,room and dinner on the new company!smile Enjoying myself at work......which makes me a lot more enjoyable at home!

Arm is about to fall off!!! Gotta thank John (StriperSS) for stopping by....gave me a bit of a rest. 75% wet sanded,more tomorrow night. Couple of little painting tips that I do. Floor jack under the diff so you can lower to reach the roof easyer and then raise to get the underside of the rockers which get missed a lot! Also a piece of paper towel in the bottom of the respirator...catches the condensation from breathing. Painted a car once and couldn't figure out how I got water in the paint...was coming out the exhale port of the respirator! Todays progress.

Great night in the shop! Gave James a short course on the buffing wheel and he went at her. Did a great job on the rear glass trim! Great 1 on 1 time in the shop. We got some shinny stuff on the car tonight.

Nice car to drive to school for sure!

I remember when my uncle promised me a forest green Rambler more-door when I was 15 years-old. I was thrilled. Then my parents stepped in and said NO.cry

I was expecting to see this thing out driving around today, with a kid with a big cheesy grin driving it! :)
I did see a 64 4 door Beaumont on a trailer heading out to Sooke today though! Looked to be all there but dirty.
